The WHO regional breakdown identifies 12 countries in North America. To date, 3 are full members of the IBE. These are the United States, Canada and Jamaica. There has been limited contact with a fourth potential member, Trinidad in the West Indies. There are currently 2 associate members in North America: the Anita Kaufmann Foundation and the Epilepsy Association of New Jersey.
In 2007 Epilepsy Canada was replaced by the Canadian Epilepsy Alliance as the full member representing Canadians living with epilepsy.
